CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A volunteer effort to restore and maintain hiking trails on Mount Monadnock is celebrating its 10th year.

Volunteers are welcome to participate for one day or several during Monadnock Trails Week from July 17 to July 21. Complimentary camping is available at the Monadnock State Park campground.

This year’s projects include constructing new stone stairs on the Pumpelly Trail; upgrading erosion control areas on the White Dot Trail; and adding footbridges and drainage on the Gilson Pond Loop and Birchtoft Trail.

No prior trail work experience is required, but those under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or adult supervisor.

The heavy-duty trail work is not recommended for those under 13.

Volunteers should plan on packing a lunch and meeting at the park headquarters at 9 a.m.
